Student Activities

It is the goal of Passaic County Technical Institute for each student to enhance his/her high school experience by participating in student activities. Involvement in student activities helps to build character and self-esteem, develops leadership skills, builds positive working relationships with peers and advisors, and allows participation in assembly programs and community service projects and activities that impact the school and community. Currently, we offer membership in over 35 clubs and organizations that fall under the following categories: Student Government, Career, Academic, Health & Nutrition, Reading/Publication, Performing Arts, Service, Student-Run and Honor Organizations. Click on the club’s link to find out additional information about membership, meetings and activities.

For further information, please contact Jerry Castaneda, Supervisor of Student Activities at 973-389-4142.
